2015 Porsche Boxster and Cayman revealed in GTS form
Porsche is extending the GTS principle to the Boxster and Cayman for the first time ever. Featuring upgraded engines and adaptive chassis, the Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS stand as the most powerful and fastest iteration of these mid-engine sports models from Porsche.
The 6-cylinder boxer engines fitted are based on the 3.4-litre units from the Boxster S and Cayman S. Thanks to fine-tuning they deliver an additional 15 hp: the Boxster GTS now has an output of 330 hp, while the Cayman GTS delivers 340 hp. Torque increases by 10 Nm in each model. Additionally, the Sport Chrono package is standard. In conjunction with the optional PDK gearbox and Sport Plus mode, this translates into sprints from 0-100 kph in 4.7 seconds for the Boxster GTS, with the Cayman GTS a tenth of a second faster.
The Boxster GTS’s top speed with the manual 6-speed transmission is 281 kph, the first of the new premium roadsters to top the 280 kph mark. At 285 kph the Cayman GTS is even faster. The new top models achieve an overall fuel consumption with PDK of 8.2 l/100 km.
The Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS feature the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) as standard which offers the driver a choice of sportier or more comfortable settings. The tires measuring 235/35 at the front and 265/35 at the rear on 20-inch Carrera S wheels provide the perfect setup. Like other Porsche GTS models, both two-seaters come with standard sports seats and leather interiors enhanced with Alcantara elements.
The slightly distinctive front and modified rear end, blackened bi-xenon headlights – with Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) – and taillights as well as black gloss exterior lettering are standard features of these new models.
